We know where we’ll be tomorrow night.
In fact, there are few things we’d miss a bash this notable for.
The Pink Party returns in all its pink-filled glory tomorrow night – and it’s going to be better than ever. Held by Toronto philanthropist Paul Etherington, the young professional behind the hugely successful motionball charity, the Pink Party was born six years ago when his mom was diagnosed with breast cancer.
What started as a backyard gathering with an iPod and 80 friends has since become one of the must-attend events in the Toronto young professional (YP) charity event scene.
But you probably already knew that.
This year’s event is all about exclusivity. Only 350 guests were invited to purchase a ticket to the soiree – after all, this is going to be the party of the summer.
Here are 9 reasons why.
1. It’s Held at a Sprawling Mansion
When it comes to summertime, the best parties are house parties – especially when they’re held at a massive mansion on a sprawling property complete with a pool.
2. It’s a Guaranteed Good Crowd
If you’ve been to a party thrown by Paul Etherington before, whether motionball or the Pink Party, then you know that he keeps some pretty sweet company. Meaning, you can expect a crowd that includes local celebrities and some of the city’s finest YPs – a perfect breeding ground for making personal and professional connections.
3. It’s Full of Stations Packed with Goodness
There will be no shortage of food stations at the Pink Party. This means things like a Bloody Caesar station courtesy of Jim Beam and a beer station (in addition to a Champagne and wine bar), along with a Rock Lobster station, where you can mow down on lobster sliders with a side of oysters.
4. The Food Dudes are Involved
In addition to the Rock Lobster gourmet grub, the beloved Food Dudes will be on-site to dish up some of the signature dishes that have made them famous. And we’d go to any event that the Food Dudes are involved in simply for their far-from-standard food.
5. There Will Be No Shortage of Eye Candy
Naturally, you can expect the fellow YP guests to be easy on the eyes. But that’s not it – guests can also take in the toned bodies thanks to a Calvin Klein fashion show held on the waterfall of the pool.
6. It Will Satisfy Your Sweet Tooth
In addition to the eye candy, you can also get your hands on some real candy and other sweets. You can expect a fully stocked candy station and an assortment of seriously diet-breaking-worthy indulgences by Junk’d Food.
7. You’ll Have Some Great Photo-Ops
You’ll want to make sure your phone is fully charged upon arrival – you can expect all kind of Instagram opportunities. Not only will the stunning home have your followers questioning whether you’re in Beverly Hills, guests are encouraged to wear pink… and the pop of colour makes for some prime colour-popping group shots.
8. You Could Win Large
In addition to the assortment of silent auction items you’ll actually want (seriously, get your wallet ready) and a blackjack table, you’ll also have a chance to win two round-trip flights to anywhere in the world that Air Canada flies. Now, that’s a way to make your summer all the more epic.
9. It’s For an Important Cause
While there’s always a reason to throw one of those over-the-top parties that will define the summer, they’re even better when they support a great cause – and one that’s touched practically all of us. The proceeds from the event will support the Canadian Breast Cancer Foundation.
